RADIO CONTROLLED JAWA SANDCRAWLER

Star Wars

3 3/4" Vehicle

Released in 1979 along with the Millennium Falcon Spaceship, the Land Of The Jawas playset, the Darth Vader TIE Fighter Vehicle, the Creature Cantina playset, the Droid Factory playset, the Patrol Dewback, and the Imperial Troop Transporter, Kenner痴 Remote Controlled Jawa Sandcrawler is still one of the most sought after pieces in the vintage collection.

This vehicle was released in the U.S. in only packaging sporting the Star Wars logo and a printed Rebate Offer starburst. The Kenner Canada version, however, featured The Empire Strikes Back logo on the packaging, as well as TESB logoed stickers that went over the Star Wars logoed stickers on the remote control itself. As is event in the photographs below, the original U.S. Star Wars logo stickers were affixed on the Canadian version of the toy. The toy photographed in the images below was the Kenner Canada version, but TESB stickers were removed before the toy became available to us to photograph.

    Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
    Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
    1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
    I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
    This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
    I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
    I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
